Budgeting Health Care Is Only a Matter of Time
BNET - Ken Terry

Alain Enthoven, the Stanford University economist who provided the intellectual firepower for the Clinton Health Plan, rejects the cost-control elements of the current reform legislation as grossly inadequate. As regular readers of this blog know, I largely agree with that assessment: there is little in the House or the Senate measures that would immediately start to bend the cost curve. But I disagree with Enthoven’s views about the extent of the problem and the nature of the solution.
